“Letterpress fun”

I’ve been wanting to come to this old and dusty corner room for some time now, but it wasn’t until one Easter holiday Wednesday that I got around to it. Luckily, our new “room keeper” Kim was there, and so I was able to get in. Plus, she really was a great help, and everything got done much faster than if I had to work it out myself. That day I left with a (rather large) number of prints of a Gill sans alphabet in both small letters and capitals.

Here are a few peeks—wish I had done many more!

Getting ready.

Pressing.
Pressing.
Job done!
Job done!

I’m looking forward to spending some more time here, printing all the wooden alphabets for future use.

Look at my future posts for the finished posters using the prints above…
